Overview

Reviewers tell us that Case, Fair, and Oster's Principles of Economics is one of the all-time bestselling principles of economics texts because they trust it to be clear, thorough and complete. After reading this text, you'll have a basic understanding of how market economies function, an appreciation for the things they do well, and a sense of things they do poorly.

The 13th Edition features the latest research and new exercises. You'll begin to learn the art and science of economic thinking and start to look at some policy, and even personal decisions, in a different way.
